Earlier this week President Trump rallied to a packed house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Thousands of Trump supporters crammed themselves into the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena, with thousands more outside unable to gain entry.
The number of people in attendance wasn’t remarkable. In fact, packed houses are pretty much standard fare for any Trump rally no matter what state he happens to be in. No, what was noteworthy about the Milwaukee rally was the fact that most of the people there weren’t even Republicans.
Elizabeth Vaughn of the formerly Never Trump RedState expressed her shock and joy over the news:
Several days ago, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale posted statistics from last week’s rally held in Toledo, OH, which showed that 43% of attendees identified as either Democratic or Independent. I called that figure “stunning” in a recent post.
But the same statistic from Trump’s Tuesday night rally in Wisconsin can only be described as staggering. 57.8% of registrants identified as either Democratic or Independent.
Obviously, as a conservative, I am overjoyed at these numbers. I take them to mean that this group is looking for an alternative to the current field of candidates running for the Democratic presidential nomination.
I don’t want to count my chickens before they’re hatched, but this news is YUGE. The level of Democrat/Independent participation in Tuesday’s rally likely means that President Trump’s support in Wisconsin is greater than the media is letting on. I’m willing to bet numbers like this means the Trump campaign probably has Wisconsin in the bag for November.
Trump rallies are drawing more and more supporters from all sides of the political spectrum. Not all of the non-Republican registrants that attended the Milwaukee rally will vote for President Trump in November. The fact that they’re showing up, however, shows that the “Orange Man Bad Nazi, Me Good Guy” message the Democrats have been pushing hasn’t worked. Russia/Ukraine collusion hasn’t worked. Impeachment hasn’t worked.
This is fantastic news for the MAGA Nation.
Democrat strategists in Washington, D.C. have to be crapping their pants in sheer terror.
I can’t wait until November.
